outside uc-san francisco where protestors are gathering right now. anne. >> reporter: regents have been meeting here all morning long. only about a dozen or two protestors have showed up thus far but police are ready for them. you can see the barricades blocking the building where the regents are meeting and will make their final decision at 1:00 this afternoon. if she is confirmed by the 26- member board of regents, janet napolitano will start her job in late september. she has already announced she would step down as homeland security secretary in that case. >> she's a leader, well defined in every capacity. >> reporter: regent and lieutenant governor gavin newsom thinks her political background if the white house and as governor of arizona is a plus. >> to walk into sacramento as if she's been there for decades already an established relationship with the governor and legislative leaders, an advocate as well or better than anyone for state funding. >> she is inheriting a train wreck. >> reporter: the union for
university workers are weary after years of pay an job cuts. >> so far as she supports increasing staffing, bringing executive exception back down to earth, those are the things we would support. >> reporter: students hope the whole culture might change. >> if she uses her political background to bring the whole uc community to the table to overhaul our finances to get more public funding, to hold down tuition and put students before wall street, it will be a winning situation. >> reporter: now, back to the protestors here outside of the board of regents meeting, one thing they're upset about is the selection processing. they say it was very secretive the way this went down. all of a sudden, suddenly finding out janet napolitano was the pick and that she has supported controversial immigration and deportation policy called secure communities which deports
illegal immigrants accused of certain crimes. >> she doesn't embody the mission of uc no background in education. her background is in law enforcement and deporting people. >> reporter: and napolitano is going to be speaking to the press after this confirmation if it happens so that's going to be later on this afternoon. live in san francisco, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> thank you. napolitano would be the first woman and the first career politician to ever head the uc system. bart managers are working on a plan to keep the trains rolling if union members go on strike next month. august 4 is the deadline to work out a new contract with the union. after that, workers may walk off the job. if that happens, bart management is considering using nonunion workers to keep a limited number of trains rolling. but there is a catch. it would take 15 weeks to certify replacement drivers. under the current labor contract nonunion workers can only start their training once bart goes out on strike. some of the protestors who

>> i didn't lose consciousness. i just kind of went down on my knees and held my face and i noticed right away i was bleeding like crazy. >> cribley doesn't think the man who hit him was connected to the peaceful protests over the george zimmerman acquittal. trayvon martin's parents are talking to the media about the death of their son and the murder trial against zimmerman. in an interview with "cbs this morning," his mother described how she felt when a jury acquitted the neighborhood watch volunteer. >> i thought surely that he would be found guilty of second- degree murder, manslaughter at the least, but i just knew that they would see that this was a teenager just trying to get home. this was no burglar. this was somebody -- somebody's son that was trying to get home. >> the parents say the role of racial profiling in the death of her son is obvious. martin's mother told charlie rose and norah o'donnell that the impact of the verdict goes
beyond the case itself. >> this is sending a terrible message, it's sending out a terrible message to young teenagers, uhm, trayvon was walking too slow so should they be walking too fast? you know, so i don't think teenagers in whole know exactly what to do now. >> an attorney for the family now wants the department of justice to investigate the case. you can watch the entire interview online. we posted a link on our website, kpix.com. click on the "news" tab. thick smoke over a southern california valley as crews fight an out-of-control wildfire. how much damage the mountain fire left behind. >> helping them has been the best thing i have ever done in my life. >> an unpaid career spanning some five decades many jobs this bay area woman has done since the '60s all for free. >> hi, i'm meteorologist lawrence karnow in the kpix 5 weather center. well, here comes summer! it is back in the bay area. some of these numbers going to
california. a wildfire along mountain rs near palm springs has now bd more t now to some developing news out of southern california. a wildfire along mountain ridges near palm springs has now burned more than 35 square miles there. 7 homes have been destroyed and the fire is only 15% contained. about 6,000 people are under mandatory evacuation orders. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. and some of the country's toughest abortion restrictions were signed into texas law this morning by governor rick perry. starting in october, women will no longer be able to get abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. the current limit is 26 weeks. abortion clinics will also be required to upgrade to surgical centers. only five of texas'42 abortion clinics meet those new requirements. and southern california edison says mitsubishi heavy industries is to blame for the

lawrence, you said it's going to be nice and it is. >> i'm excited about it. you want to see the heat you? like the hot stuff, don't you >> i do. >> we're going to crank the temperatures up. something for everyone. cooler temperatures at the coastline. the fog finally lifting. earlier today. so we have a lot of sunshine on the way this afternoon still a sea breeze in through san francisco so that's holding the temperatures down just a little bit. still 66 degrees and comfortable outside. 47 degrees in concord. -- 74 degrees already in concord and 75 degrees in san jose. throughout the afternoon, i think some of these temperatures start to get on the hot side especially inland. numbers climbing into the upper 80s and the low 90s. tonight, some patchy fog likely to make a return but only along the coastline. and just inside the bay we're going to see a lot of valley heat the next couple of days but keeping you cool toward the ocean. still the low clouds and fog beginning to back off and making their way toward the coastline where it's going to hang out the better part of the
day but inside the bay lots of sunshine and, of course, lots of sun in the valleys. not only here but around the state it's going to be very hot. some triple digits showing up even today. so get ready, that ridge of high pressure building in out of the desert southwest going to see temperatures as high as 100 in fresno for today, 97 degrees in sacramento. and 99 in yosemite. out along the coastline we are expecting low clouds and fog to kind of linger. computer models picking up on that. then tonight beginning to surge back onshore but probably that ridge of high pressure going to be too strong so not going to filter all the way to the interior valleys just inside the bay and out toward the coast. with that in mind, today a very nice afternoon outside plan on about 80 degrees and comfortable into san jose. about 89 in morgan hill. only about 63 degrees breezy and cool in pacifica with low clouds and some fog. 80s and low 90s showing up in the east bay. and as you get inside the bay we'll see those temperatures in the 60s and also the 70s. next couple of days, we are going to heat those things up pretty much right on into the weekend. some of those temperatures
near triple digits inland but out along the coastline almost 30-plus degrees difference so a huge difference just about 30 miles or so. >> that's a big difference. i'll go inland where the heat is. >> i like it cooler at the coast. >> nice to nail a forecast. >> every now and then. >> thank you. doctors have a new tool to fight cancer. the intelligent knife that can tell the difference between a cancerous tumor and healthy tissue when we come back. ,,
instrument that tells docto immediately if the tissue they're cut healthwatch, scientists have developed what they are calling an intelligent knife. it's a surgical instrument that tells doctors immediately if the tissue they are cutting into is cancerous. researchers found the iknife to be 100% accurate. it works by analyzing the smoke from vaporized tissues. amazing. seniors who don't get enough vitamin d are more likely to struggle with routine tasks. that's a study out of amsterdam that found elderly people with a vitamin d deficiency had more trouble with movements like climbing stairs or getting dressed. vitamin d comes from the sunlight or dietary supplements. 90% of seniors are believed to be deficient in it. a juicy crisp salad that's perfect for lunch on a hot day. here's stephanie and tony tantillo with a salad that's easy to put together. >> okay, steph. cucumber salad refreshing for hot days. >> we're going to lighten one a light salad.
